The Cridford Inn is set in the idyllic village of Trusham in the Teign Valley - the middle of nowhere but close to everywhere. Just 15 minutes from Exeter and just off the A38. The inn dates back to 825AD and is one of the oldest pubs in the country.
With accommodation a fantastic kitchen and a warm welcome guaranteed this inn has it all.
They say that age is just a number well that number in question is AD 825 - that equates to almost 1,200 years of history; not under the same roof of course! Currently (and possibly) the oldest inn in the country and right in the heart of Devon The Cridford is steeped in history and charm that makes this a destination venue right off the bat! To back-up that charm an offering of over 100 gins two restaurant areas accommodation in quirky rooms and holiday cottages then this inn really has it all. Since new ownership in 2016 the team have changed with chef Bill Keera in the kitchen who is Michelin trained. But don't be put off by the word Michelin - quite often it can conjure up connotations of small portions and fancy swirls of sauce.
What you will get from Bill and his team is all the quality and flavour that local produce can provide but with a portion size that will satisfy! Despite it's seemingly remote location the inn is only 8 miles from the centre of Exeter. Open 7 days a week and with special monthly theme nights pie & a pint every Tuesday for just GBP 10 and a served Sunday roast available all day the pub is truly the hub of Trusham village. The whole package is something of an experience but with such close proximity to Exeter's shopping and the motorway this little gem is going to be rediscovered all over again.
